    select the image url and use IMG button to include img src in your writing column.

    Or, after you’ve uploaded the image and the thumbnail appears in the upload section:

    1) Left-click on the image – a menu comes up.
    2) Select either ‘using thumbnail’ or ‘using original’ as appropriate
    3) Then click ‘send to editor’ in the same menu

    HTH!

    That’s because you’re still trying to link them from your hard drive. You can’t do that as I stated in my response.

    I think that you’re thinking that visitors to your blog will be able to view pictures that you have stored on your home computer. That is not the case and it’s a big security risk to boot. For pictures to be shown, they need to be uploaded to the net in some manner.

    FAQ for Uploading a Picture to Your WP.com Space and Adding it to a Post

    *VERY* rough. I’ll add pictures and the like later on.

    Staff is welcome to use it in the site’s FAQ once I add in the pictures as long as I get the credit and they actually finally put a link to the FAQ somewhere users can actually find it on the home page. :whistle:

    Polite input welcomed. :)

    I visited your site and I noticed that you have previously uploaded very large pictures. Perhaps the issue your having is one of size. If you check the FAQ’s you will find a helpful bit podz provided in it optimizing pictures and if you follow drmike’s suggestions frequently made on the forum perhaps you’ll make some of them thumbnail sized.

    Nosysnoop has also provided us with the info that any photo with a width that exceed 400* is going to lead to uploading problems as it will break the theme. I could be all wrong on this but for what it’s worth it may be worthwhile to consider (1) reducing the size of the photos you post on your blog. Or (2)getting a a photo-hosting account elsewhere and linking thumbnails in your blog to the full sized photos.

    Just to start of, in this post, you have a missing ending ‘a’ tag. The code should be like the following:

    <img height=”96″ alt=”Pen Y Gwelt” src=”http://thebeautifulcountry.wordpress.com/files/2006/07/ceriog.jpg” />

    You’ll note currently that the entire text of the post is linking to the picture. I don’t think that that’s what you want.

    TT, most of the pictures I see are coming from outside sources, not hosted on Wp.com.

    Make sure before youre telling where in the Post you want the picture. That’s number 4 in the FAQ. I’m thinking that that might be the issue.

    Hope this helps,
